This restaurant used to be the top japanese in the country, but after years of returning, and visiting not only in Nadi, but Auckland and Suva, I must stay, totally disappointed! Quality was bad, and service was also gone... ambiance mostly was also disappeared... giving too much room for another competitors to enter and take the market !!

Tbh I was expecting it to be more traditional and exciting, it was run my mostly Fijian people so no tricks. Don't get me wrong, the staff were lovely and attentive, the chef was also very nice but again because he wasn't Japanese, no actual tricks were done with the food. The food was very yummy, but again probably not... More

Friendly staff make you feel at home. The food is always good and you don't have to wait long. Take away is very reasonable and great when you are in a hurry.

We are here on our final evening before boarding our return flight home to LAX. The staff are amazing! The food is fantastic and the sake is deliciously cold! We each ordered individually yet share family style. We were in a large group of 9. The chef did a great job of keeping us all engaged while allowing for us... More

The prawns with special sauce are my favourite but unfortunately the standard depends on the person cooking which can change every visit. I find the cooks lack energy and could very easily convert the cooking experience to be more fun

We went there as part of a large group and had an enjoyable evening. The settings were great and background noise was low allowing for good dinner discussions. It wasn't like other teppanyaki where the chef is the focus and entertaining but more of a meal cooked on a hot plate in front of you. The food was flavoursome and... More

This place looks cheap and simple but the staff this is exactly what makes it great! We had a great service, show and food. Simple but very very nicely prepared and tasty. Our Cook was a lovely girl with great teppan skills. Food was amazing.

Good atmosphere, good food, guess it boils down to what you make of it. Although, there were many servers, it takes some effort to get noticed, finally figured out the easiest way was to let your chef know and she would ring a bell, someone would be there pronto. Well worth a walk in the rain.

Being used to Day Ko Ku in other parts of the world, this was definitely a let down. Food was not cooked by a Japanese Chef and the Fijian was very low in energy, no show and her chef clothing was filthy. It is such a shame as we took some friends for the experience and it was such a... More
